Rue Morgue cover’s Fantasia International Film Festival’s Small Gauge Trauma Shorts program and give’s HEIR a much appreciated mention!
“The most interesting and challenging film of this year’s programme (Fantasia’s Small Gauge Trauma), however, was HEIR, by Canadian Filmmaker Richard Powell. Part Body Horror, part H.P Lovecraft, part beautiful B-movie, the film is a reflection on the traumas of familial lineage, reminding audiences that the horror genre is at it’s best when it becomes an experience of the sensual (the senses) over the sensible (the rational)” – Rue Morgue
“Zach Green and Richard Powell from Canada’s Fatal Pictures have been making horror short films for nearly a decade. With phenomenal movies like Familiar having been released under their banner, it’s no surprise that their latest, Heir, is an effective, weird, and genuinely unsettling short.
Powell keeps things relatively ambiguous throughout; avoiding needless exposition and leaving numerous questions unanswered. Utilizing bizarre sexual imagery and disgusting practical effects, Heir is an intelligent and metaphorical horror tale that asks the frightening question of what if the evilest of humans are monsters in the most literal sense?” Read the full review here.
This fifth episode of A Real Horror Show is all about the fantastic Canadian horror film company Fatal Pictures. They have produced three incredible, visceral and thoughtful horror shorts Worm, Familiar, and Heir. I talk to producer Zach Green, intense, subtle and brilliant actor Robert Nolan (who appears in all three films) and the hardest working actor in genre movies today, the always wonderful and interesting Bill Oberst Jr.
It’s three fascinating conversations with the people who are going to bring us the best and most cutting edge horror in the decades to come. You heard it here first. Listen here.
